Please note that the trails here are narrower than they are in 'Perinet'/Andasibe and traverse steeper slopes so can be slippery during or after inclement weather. In the park you may see iconic 'herps' (reptiles and frogs) such as the enormous emerald Parson's chameleon and with luck, colourful Painted mantellas. Lunch in restaurant (at your own arrangement).

Day 9


Enjoy remote and secluded Anjajavy, the perfect location for honeymoons and family holidays alike. It is one of a small handful of sites in the country which offer the rare combination of high quality accommodation with both the wildlife and beach aspect. While biologists have created reasonably complete inventories of the local flora and fauna, new surprises will undoubtedly crop up as is always the case in Madagascar. 
NEW (to be seen on the spot): we are proud to be offering overnight excursions from Anjajavy Le Lodge to the remote Sahamalaza& Iles Radama National Park, home to two of the world's 25 most endangered primates - the Blue-eyed black lemur (photographed by Rainbow Tours client Jon Dixon) and the Sahamalaza sportive lemur. Previous clients have enjoyed the experience thoroughly.
